Flesherton needed a new website
Flesherton needed a new website. But a number of factors were impacting on the tiny Chamber of Commerce’s ability to maintain a useful website.
Make Hay developed a two-fold strategy – one that would maintain a member-updated community website and continue to offer the popular online business directory.
The major portion of the website – which provides travel and tourist information, such as hiking and biking trails, and also community arts and business events and news, ongoing Chamber initiatives, meeting minutes and news flashes – was rebuilt on a php platform to allow members to update the site without needing any technical html coding skills.
To maintain an up-to-date business directory, the Flesherton Chamber asked the other area Chamber and the Municipality to become partners in building and maintaining a shared online business directory.
Erno, the Littlest Elf™
Make Hay Communications designed and produced a seasonal web site for independent teleco BMTS for an annual holiday promotion.
The site, which links to the client’s main site, offers an original illustrated holiday story featuring Erno, the Littlest Elf ™ – and all his friends – and uses animated gifs and sound files to delight visitors. Each year, the site is available for five weeks in November/December and the story is revealed one chapter at a time; one per week. This accessibility coordinates with a radio promotion that daily asks questions about the story, with contestants entering a draw for a home computer system.
The site is engaging and interactive with auto-response answers to letters emailed to Santa and colouring book illustrations. You can press “buttons” to hear seasonal sounds, such as sleigh bells, or enjoy the entire story read aloud.
